bodice length: 15”
total length: 21 ½”
A unique piece! sheer windowpane weave in lemon yellow with dramatic puffed sleeves and huge statement buttons with tie accents. Fitted peplum cut. sleeve ends are fitted with elastic.
material: a lightly structured cotton or cotton blend; has some sheen/slip to it
closure: snaps up the front
condition: very good. freshly laundered and ready to wear. a few scattered points where weave has frayed have been lightly stabilized with invisible fusing. Some more concentrated fraying on back collar (see images). pearly finish of buttons has rubbed off onto the bowties, and this darkened tint did not lift with soaking. Some interior seams that were fraying and starting to open have been machine-stitch reinforced and stabilized with Fray Check to help prevent further fray. The weave is very open and the threads have a slippery quality to them, so this felt structurally necessary where the seams were unfinished.
